Very simple tablet has been implemented :

Image

When You click on the tablet holder, tablet is displayed. Because Concorde has not any advanced digital navigation equipment, tablet simulates independent device with own database of the airports, NDBs, VORs and fixes. Manual route input is not simulated, it's source is ofcourse route manager. And when You click on the Power button on the tablet, device will disappear.

GIT repo will be updated after MP tests.

nice idea.

If we gave everybody in the World free software today, but we failed to teach them about the four freedoms, five years from now, would they still have it? Probably not, because if they don’t recognise their freedoms, they’ll let their freedoms fall

ALS spotlights in the action :

With some nasty tricks, ofcourse. In standard, spotlights are linked with view position. But with listener on x,y,z view coordinates is not problem calculate offset between current view and intended light position...

LZIB - Night take off, view from tower :

External view with ALS spotlights. Works fine, but not in MP, because spotlight count is limited to 5.

Nice.

Another thing, while viewing the Concorde in mp through model view the plane doesn't appear to be in the centre of the frame. There is some offset. Don't know if you have fixed it already. :)
